Welcome to Blue Line BJJ – a growing online Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu resource for the men and women of law enforcement who also have a passion for the ground game. On this site you will find original articles written by cops, for cops, that also hold rank in jiu-jitsu. And although those behind Blue Line BJJ are city cops, we welcome in the county deputies and jailers who have just as dangerous of jobs. Here we provide video techniques, film studies of real world law enforcement encounters, product reviews, and other services meant to keep our brothers and sisters who wear the badge safer on the job.
The mission of Blue Line BJJ is simply:
- To provide efficient, realistic solutions to ground based problems commonly seen in law enforcement.
- To provide a ‘Team within Teams’ to support our brothers and sisters in blue regardless of jiu-jitsu affiliation.
- To provide a platform to share techniques and grow the sport aspect of jiu-jitsu.
This is truly a labor of love. No one associated with this site is in it to make money or achieve ulterior motives. We want to spread our knowledge and appreciation for ground-based self-defense training options. But we also know our limitations. No one person knows everything, and no one person can successfully teach to everyone. So aside from what we have to share, we want to create a community of like-minded jiu-jitsu practitioners who want to share their knowledge as well. That means we want to hear from you!
Please take some time clicking around the site to see what we are all about. The site is continuously being updated and improved. New articles and new videos are added weekly. We also have a growing social media presence on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.
There are a number of things you can do to help support our cause:
- Add a Blue Line BJJ patch to your gi so your fellow LEO can recognize you as an LEO teammate on the mat. It should not replace your school patch, just consider placing ours somewhere as a secondary patch.
- ‘Like’ is on our official Blue Line BJJ Facebook group for access to open conversations, tips of the week and other useful information.
- If you are a current officer, deputy or jailer you can join our Blue Line BJJ closed Facebook group for more job specific conversations, film study conversations and other information we would prefer to keep limited to a community of like-minded professionals.
- Follow us on Instagram for regularly updated jiu-jitsu related humor and motivation.
- Subscribe to us on YouTube to be notified directly each time we upload a new video.
- Most importantly, please share this site and our social media efforts with your friends and family who also fight the good fight to keep our communities safe.
If you have any suggestions on improving our mission, our site, or have any general concerns with our message, please reach out to us via our contact page. If you happen to like what we’re doing here let us know that too. For anyone who is interested training but doesn’t have a gym we can offer suggestions. If you are LEO and currently train at a gym make sure it’s listed on our gyms page.
We appreciate and support local law enforcement – both on the road and in the jails. This is our attempt to make the job a little safer. Enjoy!
